Format: Hardcover
Zell Schulman should be commended for this fabulous Passover cookbook. With a beautiful layout, charming line illustrations (and a few color photographs), and clear text, she makes the idea of tackling a seder seem absolutely doable. Of particular note are the many "menus" she suggests, detailing recipes for multi-course meals. She has different suggestions for Ashkenazic, Sephardic, "off the shelf" (utilizing available kosher for passover products), vegetarian, healthful (low in fat but high in flavor), and an ecumenical potluck (acknowledging the fact that many other religious groups choose to observe the holiday that was the cause of the Last Supper of Jesus and his apostles). The ecumenical potluck has kosher suggestions but all the other menus are described in a kosher format (meat, pareve or dairy).
Since my husband and I are vegetarian, I was looking for something beyond the more "hippie" resources available for Jewish vegetarian cooking and this book has more than exceeded my expectations. (A note to others thinking of preparing some of the vegetarian dishes: Schulman does include chicken bouillon granules in some of her vegetarian recipes which would render the food NOT vegetarian by the majority of the veggie world - just use powdered vegetable soup granules instead.) She also has an entire extra chapter of other passover recipes so you can switch or substitute to your heart's content.
I think this volume would be especially appreciated by the first-time Seder host/hostess as Schulman gives you a diagram of what your seder table should look like, the various seder plate items and their meaning, and an excellent reference for kosher wines and liquors (I would also recommend kosher.org as an additional resource). This beautiful holiday will certainly be enhanced by anyone choosing to read and implement the suggestions of this book.

This book has everything you need to make your sedar a success, from the basics to the more complicated. There is no pictures in the book of the items. I noticed some of the items need to be spiced up to taste, other wise there bland. For new or not so new jews, this book will be helpful in getting through the 8 breadless days.

I checked this book out of the library last year and again this year. It is such a great book. I had to buy it this year so I could have my own copy.

Like the other posters said, it is just beautiful.... and very easy!
